Title  Bogoliubovde Gennes Method and Its Applications 
Author(s)  Zhu, JianXin 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XI, 188 p. 50 illus., 33 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The purpose of this book is to provide an elementary yet systematic description of the Bogoliubovde Gennes (BdG) equations, their unique symmetry properties and their relation to Green???s function theory. Specifically, it introduces readers to the supercell technique for the solutions of the BdG equations, as well as other related techniques for more rapidly solving the equations in practical applications. The BdG equations are derived from a microscopic model Hamiltonian with an effective pairing interaction and fully capture the local electronic structure through selfconsistent solutions via exact diagonalization. This approach has been successfully generalized to study many aspects of conventional and unconventional superconductors with inhomogeneities ??? including defects, disorder or the presence of a magnetic field ??? and becomes an even more attractive choice when the firstprinciples information of a typical superconductor is incorporated via the construction of a lowenergy tightbinding model. Further, the lattice BdG approach is essential when theoretical results for local electronic states around such defects are compared with the scanning tunneling microscopy measurements. Altogether, these lectures provide a timely primer for graduate students and nonspecialist researchers, while also offering a useful reference guide for experts in the field

Title  Optical Properties of Metallic Nanoparticles : Basic Principles and Simulation 
Author(s)  Tr??gler, Andreas 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XIX, 217 p. 100 illus., 98 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book introduces the fascinating world of plasmonics and physics at the nanoscale, with a focus on simulations and the theoretical aspects of optics and nanotechnology. A research field with numerous applications, plasmonics bridges the gap between the micrometer length scale of light and the secrets of the nanoworld. This is achieved by binding light to charge density oscillations of metallic nanostructures, socalled surface plasmons, which allow electromagnetic radiation to be focussed down to spots as small as a few nanometers. The book is a snapshot of recent and ongoing research and at the same time outlines our present understanding of the optical properties of metallic nanoparticles, ranging from the tunability of plasmonic resonances to the ultrafast dynamics of lightmatter interaction. Beginning with a gentle introduction that highlights the basics of plasmonic interactions and plasmon imaging, the author then presents a suitable theoretical framework for the description of metallic nanostructures. This model based on this framework is first solved analytically for simple systems, and subsequently through numerical simulations for more general cases where, for example, surface roughness, nonlinear and nonlocal effects or metamaterials are investigated

Title  Spin Glasses : Criticality and Energy Landscapes 
Author(s)  Baity Jesi, Marco 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XXIX, 221 p. 71 illus., 24 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis addresses the surprising features of zerotemperature statics and dynamics of several spin glass models, including correlations between soft spins that arise spontaneously during avalanches, and the discovery of localized states that involve the presence of twolevel systems. It also presents the only detailed historiographical research on the spin glass theory. Despite the extreme simplicity of their definition, spin glasses display a wide variety of nontrivial behaviors that are not yet fully understood. In this thesis the author sheds light on some of these, focusing on both the search for phase transitions under perturbations of Hamiltonians and the zerotemperature properties and responses to external stimuli. After introducing spin glasses and useful concepts on phase transitions and numerics, the results of two massive Monte Carlo campaigns on threedimensional systems are presented: The first of these examines the de Almeida???Thouless transition, and proposes a new finitesize scaling ansatz, which accelerates the convergence to the thermodynamic limit. The second reconstructs the phase diagram of the Heisenberg spin glass with random exchange anisotropy.

Title  Predictability of Chaotic Dynamics : A Finitetime Lyapunov Exponents Approach 
Author(s)  Vallejo, Juan C;Sanjuan, Miguel A. F 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XV, 136 p. 47 illus., 22 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book is primarily concerned with the computational aspects of predictability of dynamical systems ??? in particular those where observation, modeling and computation are strongly interdependent. Unlike with physical systems under control in laboratories, for instance in celestial mechanics, one is confronted with the observation and modeling of systems without the possibility of altering the key parameters of the objects studied. Therefore, the numerical simulations offer an essential tool for analyzing these systems. With the widespread use of computer simulations to solve complex dynamical systems, the reliability of the numerical calculations is of everincreasing interest and importance. This reliability is directly related to the regularity and instability properties of the modeled flow. In this interdisciplinary scenario, the underlying physics provide the simulated models, nonlinear dynamics provides their chaoticity and instability properties, and the computer sciences provide the actual numerical implementation. This book introduces and explores precisely this link between the models and their predictability characterization based on concepts derived from the field of nonlinear dynamics, with a focus on the finitetime Lyapunov exponents approach. The method is illustrated using a number of wellknown continuous dynamical systems, including the Contopoulos, H??nonHeiles and R??ssler systems. To help students and newcomers quickly learn to apply these techniques, the appendix provides descriptions of the algorithms used throughout the text and details how to implement them in order to solve a given continuous dynamical system

Title  From Tracking Code to Analysis : Generalised CourantSnyder Theory for Any Accelerator Model 
Author(s)  Forest, Etienne 
Publication  Tokyo, Springer Japan, 2016. 
Description  XXIII, 347 p. 11 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book illustrates a theory well suited to tracking codes, which the author has developed over the years. Tracking codes now play a central role in the design and operation of particle accelerators. The theory is fully explained step by step with equations and actual codes that the reader can compile and run with freely available compilers. In this book, the author pursues a detailed approach based on finite ???s???maps, since this is more natural as long as tracking codes remain at the centre of accelerator design. The hierarchical nature of software imposes a hierarchy that puts mapbased perturbation theory above any other methods. The mapbased approach, perhaps paradoxically, allows ultimately an implementation of the DepritGuignardSchoch algorithms more faithful than anything found in the standard literature. This hierarchy of methods is not a personal choice: it follows logically from tracking codes overloaded with a truncated power series algebra package. After defining abstractly and briefly what a tracking code is, the author illustrates most of the accelerator perturbation theory using an actual code: PTC. This book may seem like a manual for PTC; however, the reader is encouraged to explore other tools as well. The presence of an actual code ensures that readers will have a tool with which they can test their understanding. Codes and examples will be available from various sites since PTC is in MADX (CERN) and BMAD (Cornell)
